About Smart Parcel Box
Smart Parcel Box is a brand which is part of the homeware retailer Homescapes, a leading online retailer based within the UK with nearly 2 decades of experience in the home and garden industry. A well-respected company trading online at www.homescapesonline.com, Homescapes provide millions of happy households with quality home furnishings, hardwood furniture and textiles every year. Homescapes have seen a growing need for this product, with customers informing us time and time again about their missed parcels and aggravation about re-organising a delivery that needs to fit around their busy lives. With the experience and feedback from customers and the support from Homescapes, the Smart Parcel Box was born.
Design & Manufacture
The Smart Parcel Box has been designed to suit British customers and the standard delivery process, it is easy to use and can accept several parcels over the course of one day. Thorough research has been carried out into the buying habits of UK customers along with delivery trends and the success rate of deliveries before the conceptualisation of this product. We are aware of the increasing number of missed deliveries, exposed deliveries and delivery theft and know that the Smart Parcel Box will combat these issues.
With typical UK homes in mind, the Smart Parcel Box has been designed to complement and blend in with popular brick, wood and concrete homes. Its modern design, straight lines and subtle colours of grey, green or black will compliment most garden and front entrance areas. Alongside this, the Smart Parcel Box is also available in several striking colours including red, yellow and blue, should you wish to give your entrance way a pop of colour.
Designed around an electronic exchange of data, the Smart Parcel Box uses a unique smart 2D barcode, located on the inside of the parcel chute. When scanned by the courier this acts as proof of delivery for your parcel. Couriers can also record this barcode number as proof of delivery if they do not have scanning equipment.
Each box’s address, location and barcode is registered with www.smartparcelbox.com so that couriers can locate and successfully deliver to your box. It is recommended that all parcel delivery addresses include instructions to deliver to the Smart Parcel Box to encourage a smooth delivery.
